Evergreen Christmas Salad

Here’s an easy salad using perennial Daubenton kale…..

Kale, hazelnut and apple salad

….plus a little vinaigrette, some chopped sorrel leaves, a handful of toasted hazelnuts and a couple of chopped sweet apples.

I made it by the scrunching method where chopped kale is sprinkled with a little sea salt and then squeezed and massaged with the hands for a couple of minutes. It makes the kale softer and sweeter.
